Provide computers for high-risk children in India

New partners and centers


We are in the final stages of our evaluation of a new partner organization in Chennai. They have a number of projects and one of them is HIV/AIDS intervention working with HIV-infected women and sex workers. They work primarily with the mothers and support their children monetarily. These children are in the younger age group. What we have done is identify their siblings that fall in our target group. They live in central Chennai and attend school in the surrounding areas. Our program would be a new project for them in terms of teaching and working with our target age group.
This is their website -

One major advantage is the proximity of the training center to the high-tech and automotive manufacturing corridor for job placement and getting volunteers.

Similarly, in Delhi we have completed the evaluation of the site for a new partner (Apne Aap) based on our successful partnership in Kolkata. Also the management of our website will be done by the staff and students of a non-profit organization based in Kolkata that serves children of sex workers.

The partner changes have been necessitated by the lack of adherence to our guidelines and policies by the current partners.

Also ASSET India Foundation has been selected to participate in the YouTube Nonprofit program and is listed as a SUPERSTAR on GlobalGiving!  This is the highest level that an organization can reach on GlobalGiving!
